Dr. A.F. (Arthur) Lutz is a physical geographer with a solid background in hydrology, hydrological
modelling, GIS, remote sensing and cryospheric sciences. His expertises include hydrological
modelling at scales ranging from large river basins to small catchments, climate change impacts
for future water resources, simulation models, data analysis, hydro-meteorological monitoring in
the field, and training. Particular focus of his work is on the modelling of climate change impacts
for high-mountain hydrology. He is mainly educated at Utrecht University, where he completed
his Bachelor and Master degree in physical geography. His education focused on land-surface
hydrology, land degradation and catchment modelling, remote sensing, and spatial analysis.
Besides, he focused on the cryospheric environment by attending specialization courses in
glaciology, permafrost & periglacial environments at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS),
and did an internship in the cryospheric research group at the University of Zurich. Arthur
worked for several years as a consultant and GIS-specialist, before joining FutureWater in
2011. He has international working experience in multiple developing countries in Asia, Latin
America and Africa. He is author and co-author of multiple peer-reviewed publications. Between
2012 and 2016 he conducted a combined PhD research at FutureWater and Utrecht University
resulting in his PhD thesis titled “Impact of climate change on the hydrology of High Mountain
Asia”.
